Year 13s collected their much anticipated results from Nailsea School, in what has been an unprecedented year. A one way system was set up within the school in line with social distance protocols. Separate areas were set up for careers advice with another for pastoral and emotional support, helping students get any additional information that they might need. 

Many students were very pleased with their results and the school saw an overall increase in headline figures from 2019. With a 3% increase in A*/A, 5% increase in A*/B and a 2% increase in A*- C results.  

Mrs Elliott – Headteacher said  

“This group of students have all done something amazing and something no other young person has been asked to do – complete their schooling against a backdrop of a pandemic. I am immensely proud and humbled by the way students, staff and families have responded to this situation. 

I am thrilled for those students and staff that got the results that they hoped for, but beyond those pieces of paper, our students have all shown immense character and resilience during this entire process and I am exceptionally proud of Team Nailsea. My colleagues and I will continue to be here for all students to make sure they find the success that they deserve and the destination they aspire to.” 

Mr Reddiford – Head of Sixth Form said 

“On this more difficult than usual results day, we are delighted that so many students got the grades to take the next steps. ”
